```108     ON THE  EFFECT  OF  THE  INTERNAL  FRICTION  OF FLUIDS
Dubuat's experiments on this subject consist of 44 experiments on spheres oscillating in water (Tom. II. p. 236) ; 31 experiments on other solids oscillating in water (p. 246); and 3 experiments on spheres oscillating in air (p. 283). The following table contains a comparison of the formula (148) with Dubuat's results for spheres oscillating in water. The value of v ' yt employed in the calculation is 0*0564 inch English, or 0*05291 inch French.
